in washington gop presidential hopeful mitt romney will deliver a speech to 10,000 members of the conservative political action conference. with rick santorum's three victories, leaving a hint republicans aren't enthusiastic about romney, his performance today would be critical. for more on that and the on-going fight over health care coverage for birth control, brian moare joins us from washington. good morning. >> reporter: romney's supporters have been urging him to step up his game, today, is his chance. before the gop presidential hopefuls address a big gathering of conservatives here in washington, former candidate rick perry set the tone. >> if it's halftime in america, i'm fearful of what the final score will be if we let this president start the second half as a quarterback! >> reporter: it is a critical chance for rick santorum to build on his big primary season
wins earlier this week and make the case he is the conservative candidate who can win. a chance for newt gingrich to rally supporters. but it may be mitt romney who has the most ridding on his cpac appearance. >> it's an incredible opportunity for him to speak to conservatives to the issues they care about. >> he's struggling with conservatives, expected to explain his times as massachusetts governor. the candidates may attack each other, the president and administration's contraceptive policies will be targets. the president is not ready to sound off. >> come on, guys. >> his republican rivals are. >> this attack on religious freedom can not stand. >> reporter: it could be a key barometer for santorum in particular. when it comes to the controversy over contraception,
at church-owned organizations, john kerry is urging president obama to work out a compromise. last night on "the ed show" terry o'neill, the president of the national organization for women said she thinks the mandate and battle should be about women's health. >> it's striking to me how many male politicians are willing to use women's health as a political football. i would like to have a meeting with senator kerry and find out what he's thinking about. my understanding in fact is that catholic bishops have been in the capitol, meeting with elected officials, they have not been meeting with the heads of women's organizations. i think that any senator who intends to support any kind of legislation for example, to restrict women's access to birth control in their health insurance plans needs first to meet with the women's organizations.
it's -- and what they need to understand? is that it's not just women who will not support them at the polls, it's women and men. birth control is a fundamental part of a woman's health care and men rely on birth control as much as women do, to prevent pregnancy. each night ed schultz and his guests debate and discuss the most important issues affecting americans. watch "the ed show" at 8:00 eastern only on msnbc, the place for politics. elsewhere for the first time since the partial meltdown of the three mile island nuclear plant in 1979, the government has approved a license for a nuclear power facility. by a 4-to-1 vote, nut clear regulatory commission okayed a plan to build new reactors in georgia. it would be built on an existing site. would have the $14 billion
